“We take great pride in being called upon again and again to serve our government partners and provide quality, mission-critical support here at home and abroad,” said Chuck Garrett, CEO of Cherokee Nation Businesses. “Even more rewarding is the importance of many projects completed over the past year that align with our organization’s mission.”

Cherokee Federal’s experienced team of more than 30 tribal-owned state contractors manages thousands of projects for more than 60 federal clients around the world. Whether it’s humanitarian assistance, national security and foreign affairs, technology, healthcare, or logistics, the organization is committed to helping federal clients create solutions, solve complex challenges, and serve America’s interests around the world.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized once again by the Bloomberg government as a top-tier federal contractor,” said Steven Bilby, President of Cherokee Federal. “The dedication and excellence of our people and offerings, combined with excellence in execution alongside our government partners on critical missions, continues to position our organization on a solid path for growth.”

The 11th annual BGOV200 edition is the culmination of a comprehensive data cleansing and analysis of areas such as company hierarchy, contract titles and agency assignments. Data integrity makes this the number one source for public sector contract practitioners trying to understand shifts in the competitive landscape.

“We are honored to recognize Cherokee Nation Businesses as one of the top government contractors for fiscal year 2021,” said Kerry Lenahan, general manager and head of government contracting solutions, Bloomberg Government. “This year’s BGOV200 finds a decline in government contract spending consistent with the ongoing consolidation of government suppliers, with fewer, larger orders going to larger companies. In this environment of heightened competition, Bloomberg Government is making it easier for clients to understand the competitive landscape and broader market trends, and to identify the best partners to help their business grow.”
